Nekamenujte proroky

Language: Czech (Čeština)

Nekamenujte proroky.
Neb pěvci jsou jak ptáci;
kdo hodil po něm kamenem,
k těm víc se nenavrácí.

Soud boží na se národ zve,
jenž pěvce své ctít neví,
a nejstrašnější kletbou jest,
když bůh odejmul zpěvy.

Jeť srdce pěvců nejčistší
a všeho hněvu prosté,
a co vám zpíval od srdce,
to ve svém srdci noste.
